It's nice to meet you! I'm Ellen Lazaretti, a UX Designer in Austin, Texas.
Currently, I'm working on legacy software with a talented, fun team in the EdTech space. I'm the sole designer on a scrum team that's dedicated to tech debt and enhancements of existing system components. Outside work, I enjoy serving on the Austin User Experience Professionals Association (UXPA) board.
Over the past few years, I've focused on pivoting my career from visual design to user experience design. My journey into user experience started with informal online courses, which eventually led me to return to college and pursue a degree. Outside of work and school, I sought out hackathons and workshops to gain experience.
I'm passionately focused on the users for which I design for. I've found the focus on usability and designing delightful user experiences to be highly rewarding. Solving problems and collaborating with diverse teams are two of my passions.
